Default Ideas for Heartburn?

I have bad heartburn (I get it off and on, anyway, but pregnancy kicks it up big time). I usually just drink milk and call it good, but milk hasn't been agreeing with me since getting pregnant. I'm sick of tums and would like to put off any prescription meds at least a little longer, if possible. I'm willing to try anything once.

I think papaya enzymes are supposed to help.

That is what I was going to suggest, too. Even in pregnancy I donít get a lot of heartburn, but when I do they help.

A tablespoon of raw apple cider vinegar in a glass of water always fixed mine.

Also, try to avoid drinking with meals. Drink water in between meals.

Baking soda as an antacid has been rated category C by the FDA during pregnancy, mostly because of high sodium which can cause or exacerbate edema and raise blood pressure.

I would never have guessed that! Thanks for the warning!

I will second the suggestion to not drink anything during meals. It makes a huge difference for me.

I think it's totally a personal call. I tend toward low blood pressure so it probably would be fine for me-- I just wanted the info out there.

If you want to try homeopathy, try the cell salt called Nat Phos. (Not in the little blue tubes, but in a bigger container in the homeopathy section.)

You can also try Nux Vomica 30c

I'd like to second the papaya enzymes! They helped me a lot when I was pregnant with dd2.

I've heard milk can actually aggravate heartburn.

It probably depends on the person. It's an absolute life saver for me. A glass of milk can completely kill it for hours. But, no milk for me right now.
